Information about the circular economy

The circular economy is part of our everyday life.

EcoSairila offers information about the circular economy through learning environments, company collaboration, training, and events. In the section below, you can join a virtual tour or submit your own development ideas.

Familiarise yourself with the learning environments, the education offered by educational institutions, and the circular economy material bank.

Material cycles

EcoSairila specialises in processing, utilising, and closing out the community’s material cycles.

The waste material flows from the area, household waste, and commercial and industrial waste fractions are sent to EcoSairila. The fractions consist of mixed waste, organic waste, garden waste, timber, demolition and construction waste, and soils, among other things. EcoSairila’s special features include the circular economy of urban waters. Wastewater is used to produce nutrients, soil remediation products, energy, and reclaimed water.
